Quoted in Forbes.com article

I am beyond excited to have been quoted in a Forbes.com article exploring Big Data’s usage in K12 schools. An except is below:

Predicting teacher success
School districts in Chula Vista, Calif., Winston-Salem, N.C. and other cities are using big data tools to help their schools hire teachers. The districts are piloting a predictive analytics software program from Hanover Research’s Paragon K-12 that uses massive quantities of historical data to correlate teachers’ individual attributes to student achievement, alone and in relation to one another. Joel Sackett, Paragon K-12 product manager, says the company’s partnerships with grade school districts “helps them prioritize teacher applicants in a way that analyzes information to predict – at the time of hiring – which teachers will be most successful at improving education.”
